Simple solution: Beth promotes the Scourge of the Spaceways to Captain with a seniority date appropriate to when his year group would have expected to be promoted. Or even a year or two ahead as a "below the zone" promotion. Then gives him the stars he would have received in turn.

Problem with that is the hatchet job that the MA did on Zilwicki. A large part of the Galaxy still thinks of him as the loose cannon who nuked a park full of kids. Beth can't been seen as supporting that, even slightly.

I fear the Anton is destined to always be on the official sidelines, (while actually leading the hunt for the MA in the background).

That's not a bad thing. He didn't like the Scourge of the Spaceways and the visibility that came with it either. He'd always worked better in the shadows.

It’s not going to be Zilwicki. First and foremost, he’s a field agent not a manager. Second, he’s busy hunting the MAlign.

Here is what I see for Anton Zilwiki. He will head the Joint Intelligence Command searching for the Alignment. Second the Empress will very quietly and very black take him off half pay and promote him to Read Admiral. Remember he and Cachet brought out an intelligence asset so profound it's right up their with the braking of the JN-25 code or the capture of an enigma machine during WWII.

Just hope he has a better future than Commander Joseph R. Rochefort, USN, Commander of Station Hypo, did. Of course, his direct report is to Elizabeth, not a jealous superior who insisted that all good ideas came out the head office.

Sarnow and Khumalo are good at their jobs and that is the problem:
Who will replace them in Talbott and Silesia?

Never repair a running system! Replace them could get you problems there.

Goldpeak is a good battle commander, but are she good with logistics and diplomacy? Don´t know if she has the abilities to replace Khumalo. Why not call her into Navy Leadership instead??

Terekhov in Talbott seems like it would work (already a Commodore; knows the area; foreign service experience... also would let them deploy a less experienced combat commander as his second because Terekhov can handle that himself).

Here is what I see for Khumalo. He will be placed on the retired list at his current rank and become Deputy Viceroy and Lieutenant Governor of the Talbott Quadrant. Goldpeak will take his place as CO Talbott Station with Torville taking over as CO Tenth Fleet.
